Ski Trail Report

Trails remain open. A beautiful day on the trails Saturday, great seeing so many people out and nice to see folks out this Thanksgiving weekend enjoying the pleasant weather. Bit warm for hanging on to snow but the base is holding out, especially on the early season trails.

This evening we groomed Skaters Waltz. No other grooming planned until more snow. Looks to be much cooler on Sunday. Trails will be skiing faster and probably won’t soften up much with temps forecasted to below freezing.

Best skiing is on Sukkerbusk for classic and Skaters Waltz for skating. Best to avoid other trails until it freezes down and more snow follows.

Has been a nice start to the ski season with good early season conditions. Great seeing so many people out the past a week, thanks for the reports and purchase of season passes. 

Total snowfall this season at 10″. Compacted base on trail 1-4″.

Winter operating plans include to operate for day skiing on the the ski, snowshoe and fat bike trails. (Trail maps posted here) Similar to the COVID season, there will be no services available. Parking in the far lot with portable bathrooms.No lodging or meal service. Starting Thanksgiving weekend we will have the Brant cabin available as a warming area with restrooms and sitting area and tables. There are no ski rentals available. 

Ski trail season passes can be purchased on our website. (scroll down to bottom of page) Purchasing season pass helps with operating and maintenance costs to prepare the trails, equipment repairs to the grooming equipment and property taxes. Thank you. 

Select fat bike trails have been groomed and are now open.
